30 Day Pixar Meme 16/30: Favorite “A Bug’s Life” Character
This one’s actually a little harder than the last one. I really like A Bugs Life and I think all the characters in it are really well fleshed out and fun But I’m gonna have to go with my main ant, Flik. He’s just such a goof ball! He’s smart, he’s creative but he’s a big old screw up. I think he’s just so relable to all us nerds who feel outcast and only want to leave our mark on society. Plus Dave Foley’s voice acting is so much fun. Yup, love me some Flik
Boo was the collective fear of an entire universe of monsters! I loved that little twist. Monsters fear kids as much as kids fear monsters. But not this kid. With the exception of Randall, she was blissfully innocent to the scary things in her closet. :]
It’s a tough call between The Incredibles and Wall-e. On one hand, you have a post-apocalyptic movie about a robot cleaning up the earth who is sent into space when meeting an other-worldly machine, and on the other hand, we have a dysfunctional family of superheroes who have to deal with a crazed fan boy gone maniacal. I think in the end, I love The Incredibles the most because the story was wholly original, and for the subject of superheroes, that’s really hard to do. It had basically everything that makes a movie great: comedy, tragedy, drama, the works. This was also the first movie that starred human protagonists. This was Pixar’s biggest challenge, since they never really focused on animating people, and they tackled it beautifully.
The scene from Dash sprinting throughout the island forest and causing general havoc to his pursuers up to the family fighting the bad guys together in the forest is action-packed and awesome :] but the ending fight scene is still one of the best scenes ever as well! D: Gaaaah so hard to choose! X_x
